More Than 2,000 IJes to be Covered
in Presentation of 1'-
Final dress rehearsal of "Ctton
Stockings", the eighteenth annual Un-
ion opera, which will play one week,
beginning Monday night, at the
'Whitney theater, will . be held to-
morrow night.
The Mimes production has for
some days been practically read for
presentation due to the early train-
ing this fall of both cast and chor-
uses, the last few rehearsals adding
only to the excellence of its lines,;
lighting effects and staging in gen-
eral. "No Union opera was ever so
thoroughly ready for presentation as+
Cotton Stockings,'" asserts E. Mor-
timer Shuter, director.-
Written by Sword
Written by Charles H. Sword, '24,I
and directed entirely by Mr. Shuter,{
this year's Mimes production, a com-
edy in two acts, was especially writ-
ten for production by Mimes. Some1
of its parts were written with a view1
to adapting them to the men who will
play them. Such a part is that of
Susan to be played by Lionel Ames,
'24, the charming female lead In "In
and Out", last' year's production. The
role of Claribel Joyous, high priest of
rythmic motion, which will be play-
ed by James Dresbach, '26L, was un-
usually well fitted by its author to
the comedienne of "In and Out".
One of the outstanding features inY
"Cotton Stockings" is the "Fantas-
tique dance" in which George Hoff-
man, '24, takes part. Another of the
numbers which is intended to im-
press -the audience is the singing of
Barre Hill, '26, Vernon Myers, '24, as
Jerry Hastings, who wants to write,
will carry the male lead. Another
principal character is Charles Liv-
ingstone, '25, who takes the part of
Alaric Clark, an artist.
Hoyer Dreels Dances
The members of the three chorus-
es-men's, girl ', and show girl's-
are expected to do unusual work
since many of the men of each chor-
us took part in last year's comedy.
The dances for the opera .were ar-
ranged by Roy lHoyer, leading man
with Fred Stone in "Stepping Stones".
Musical selections composed es-
pecially for the Mimes production by
Charles H. Sword, '24, and William
Kratz, '24E, number more than 15,
and fit uniquely the dances and
characters of "Cotton Stockings".-
Ames, Myers, and Hill will each sing
a number of the songs composed for
the opera.
Costumes and gowns used in the
opera were designed and executed
by Lester of Chicago, who has be-
come known through his past work
on Union opera productions. The or-
iginal plates of the costumes have
been on display in the Union lobby
for the past few days. Many pic-
tures of the feminine stars in their
costumes have been on display in
the windows- of State street mer-
Programs Ready
The programs for the opera are
now printed and all but bound. Cuts,1
writeup on, the Mimes theater, the
Union, and "Cotton Stockings", and
a message by President Marion L.

Burton, as well as the announcement'
cast and usual features make this
program truly an attractive one.
Travelling more than 2,600 miles,
touching 15 cities, playingh17 imes,
and appearing in cities whosi com-
bined population is 15,000,000 peo-
ple, "Coton Stockings" is destined to

Pan-Hellenic Ball As Unique

A new page in the annals of theI
University's social history was writ-!

Dorothy Maitland, '24, and her
brother Alexander S. Maitland of Ne-,
gaunee, led the grand march. A
long list of couples followed the lead-!
ers, the varied colors of the ladies' I
dresses making a charming display. i
Music was furnished by Kennedy's1
orchestra, and there was dancing
with but short intermission from 9
o'clock, the hour of the grand march,
until 2 o'clock. Few if any couples
were seen leaving for home beforel

the strains of "Home, Sweet Home"
reminded them that there was still
some of the night left in which to

from an enthusiastic crowd resulted

No corsage bouquets were worn,
although several were seen wearing
bunches of flowers which obviously
had been plucked from the mural
decorations lining the walls of the
ball-room. These flowers were the
only formal decorations put up for
the occasion.
Unique and interesting were the
programs, specially made for the
event. These had metal covers, upon
each of which were engraved the fig-

Declares Pre-War And Present Amer.
lean Attitude In Accord With
Monroe Doctrine
Philadelphia, Nov. 30-(By A.P.)-
America's foreign policy today with
relation to conditions in Europe, Lat-
in America, or the Pacific squares
consistenly with the Monroe Doctrine,
Secretary Hughes said in an address
here tonight heside the American
Academy of Political and Social Sci-
ence gathered in celebration of the
centenary of the Doctrine.
With that declaration as his text,
the secretary delivered a comprehen-
sive restatement of the position of the
United States toward the Europeanf
tangle, the Far East and Latin Amer-
ica. He said the American nation
would rather bear such ills as might
result from its present policy toward
Europe than suffer "tlie greater evils,
which would follow the sacrifice of
our independent position "; reasserted
the adherence of this government to
the principals of peace in the Pacifi
laid down by the Arms Conference;
and set forth the proposition which he
said should govern relationship with
the sister republics of the western'
All of these policies Mr. Hughes as-
serted, accord entirely withthe Monroe
Doctrine which remains essentially a
policyto be applied when ever any
exeglency may requiring its appli-'
"I would not be entirely correct," he
continued, "to say that the Doctrine is
nearly negative. The Doctrine is a
principal of exclusion both with ref-I
erence to the Declaration as to non-
intervention and to that of exclusion
of territorial control; it is directed at
the exclusion of iner position by non=
American powers. The principal of
exclusion embodies a policy of self
defense on the part of the United'
States; it is a policy set up and appli-
ed by the United States."
Taking up the relationship between
American policy toward Europe and
the Monroe Doctrine he said:
"We entered the Great War, not vio-
lating our tradition, for the cause of
Liberty itself was at stake. We have
emerged from the war with the same
general aims that we had when we
went in. Though victors, we have
sought neither territory or general re-
parations. Our people have borne
their own burden and in large part we
are bearing the burden of others.
"We are not seeking to dictate to
Europe or to deprive any one of!
rights. But we do desire peace and!
economic recuperation in Europe.

Chicago, Nov. 30-(By A.P.)-Maj-
or John L. Griffiths, commissioner of
athletics of the Western Conference
for two years tonight was reappoint-
ed for another two year term, with an
increase in salary at the annual
meeting of the athletic directors of
the "Big Ten" Universities. The Ath-
letic directors met preliminary to the
meeting of the football coaches to-
morrow to draft the 1924 gridiron
The reappointment of Major Griffi-
ths, the directors said, was a re-
ward for his efficient administration.
The position was created to promote
more friendly athletic relations be-
tween the universities and also to
pass on the numerous eligibility
(rlffith Sought After
Major Griffiths, the founder of the
great relays, has been offered the,
athletic directorship of a Missouri
Valley conference institution, it was
reported, and his services were in
demand at other institutions.
After considering the plea of the
football officials, who demanded an
increase to $100 from $50 for offi-
ciating, the directors voted to recom-
mend a compromise fee of $75 for
each official. The recommendation
probably will be acted favorably up-
on by the faculty committee of the[
Big Ten tomorrow. The directors al-
so voted to raise the fees of the bas-
ketball referee from $30 to $35.
The directors after an all day ses-
sion went into conference with the
faculty representatives tonight to
make their recommendations and dis-
cuss questions governing athletics for
the 1924 season. Passing of a rule
to prohibit the protesting of an ath-
lete after the season opens will be
among the questions to be consider-
ed. The faculty representatives will
meet tomorrow to take final action.
Schedules Nearly the Sane
The meeting of the directors and1
gathering of the football coaches
buzzed with excitement today over
the prospects of arrangements of in-
tersectional games for next season.
It is practically assured however that
there will be only a few changes in
the gridiron slate of any team.
The prospects for a 1924 battle be-
tween Illinois and Michgan which di-
vided honors this season appeared
bright. Coach Yost of the Wolverines
said he would be glad to arrange a
game provided a satisfactory date
could be agreed upon. Yost said
Minnesota, Ohio State, Iowa, andl
Wisconsin would be played in 1924,
and if dates could be aranged to ac-
commodate Illinois he. would b
pleased to do so. Coach Stagg de-
clared he had had no correspondence
with eastern teams relative to an in-
tersectional game and there probab-
ly would be no change in the Ma-
roon schedule for next year.

Washington, Nov. 30-(By A.P.)-
Acting on telegrams received froml
Gov. R. A. Nestos, of North Dakota,j
and other citizens of that state, Pres-
ident Coolidge directed the Interstate;
Commerce Commission today to makel
a special inquiry into allegations that
increased freight rates on coal min-
ed in North Dakota amounted to a
conspiracy to destroy the state's coal
mining industry.
Gov. Nestos telegraphed the Pres-
ident several days ago complaining,
of the increased rates and urging a
congressional investigation. In di-
recting the special inquiry, Mr. Cool-
idge was moved by a desire to have
complete information at the disposal
of congress, should that body desire
fn.- air.

Over 20 men have thus far signi-
fled their desire to join the United'
States Naval Reserve unit which is
now in the process of being estab-
lished here. These men, most of whom
are former reserve men or who have
had some previous experience in the
United States Navy will meet at the
Union Wednesday evening when they
will sign the papers that will make1
them members of the reserve force of
the navy.
George E. Sloan, '23L, and Walter
M. Simpson, Grad, will have charge
of all arrangements and command of
the force until such time as the unit
is of sufficient size to warrant the
presence of a naval officer here.
Simpson holds a commission of En-
sign in the reserve while Sloan is a.
Yoeman in the supply corps.
At the present time Secretary of
the Navy Edwin E. Denby is attempt-
ing to have Michigan placed on the
list of schools that teach naval sub-
jects in their engin ering schools.
